Dennis was kind enough to send me some copies of his 'Russian Aerospace Guide' newsletter when I contacted him in the mid-1990s. In pre-Internet Ireland they were certainly a great help in my search for more information on Soviet spaceflight and I will always be thankful for that help. Although I didn't know him personally I'm still very saddened at his passing at such a young age.

Dennis Newkirk passed away on April 12, 2012. He was the author (among many publications) of the wonderful Almanac of Soviet Manned Space Flight (1990).
He was a really great guy. Generous with his time and resources. I met him around '92 or so, and we got to be good friends soon after, sharing with each other everything we collected on the Soviet space program. He had a keen eye for Soviet space history and inspired many (including myself) with his generosity and good humor. He will be missed.
